Hanoi police on November 4 seized nearly one tonne of animal organs that were being smuggled from the northern province of Bac Ninh.

Driver Truong Dinh Thanh admitted to police that he was hired to transport the batch to the capital city for consumption.

Over the past 10 days, the capital’s police have busted a number of similar cases.

On October 24, a lorry, registration number 89C – 04055, was found carrying 17 parcels of foul-smelling pork organs when it was handling goods in Ninh Hiep, outlying district of Gia Lam. All of them had Chinese labels.-VNA
